I saw the title & thought something COMPLETELY different!

I know you trained is a couple styles ( I'm sorry, I forgot which), but why not get up to a proper level & teach? You then can open a mixed styles place like my teacher did: He's a former SEAL, and when it was strictly Korean styles, we always had senior student night sparring sessions that were brutal.....but addictive! It filled a void for me; I'm a thumpin junkie ( I think being one of seven kids grew the fight lust in me).
I now train under him in THai & Brazilian styles - I think you'd really enjoy Gracie Brothers style Ju jitsu. Thai is good old "fighting dirty" but a formal system!

What can I say? Do you believe that the benifits now will outweight the problems later on?

banshee...

you should write a book or something...

this is great!!!

do you watch WWE (of course you do)...

is your wrestling "realer" that the WWE???

what do you get paid???

is it worth getting the crap beat out of you???

if you have passion for it, do it anyway though...

Bout Time ....
mind out of the gutter indeed!!
I've actually had more than a few people suggest I teach a women's self defense course. Once the wrestling's done, I may, I dunno.
I don't have any true expertise in a single area, just dabbling = karate, kung fu, jiu-jitsu, CQC, police restraint, touch of kickboxing, and my old standby of bar brawling.
None qualify me to teach any of 'em, but I can sure teach a person how to take a suplex!

Jonna .... yes. Plain & simple, yes.

TSA ... no, I don't watch WWE, believe it or not; not regularly, at least. Too much drama and not enough sport for my tastes. And define "realer" ... I land in the same type of ring as the guys on TV do, I take and give the same kind of moves as they do, and I get the same kind of injuries that they do. The biggest differences are that the WWE is more a shock-value kind of show, where ours is the basic good vs. evil story with more wrestling and less talking. And they do theirs in front of like 20,000 people, and I certainly don't.

I don't get paid much, not enough where I don't have to work a day job, but it's some extra pocket change.
And yes, it's worth getting the crap beat out of me, because I've made a difference in someone's life, if even for one evening. There's nothing quite like an 8 year old tiptoeing up to me with a pen and asking in a whisper if I can sign their program, while their mom or dad watches them with a big smile.

Well, I'm glad to see you've had the experience!


Sounds like you'd be a quick route teacher to Krav Manga...give it a try, you'd like it!

Yes, krav maga is more suited to what I already know, and do well.


There's an accredited center not too far from me... this isn't the first time I've thought of calling them. I just dunno if my body could take both the wrestling and the learning a new thing at the same time.

From your posts Banshee, the only reason you keep doing it, is because it means so much to you. It seems an important part of your life that your not willing to give up and your willing to go through all the pain due to being so important. Thats my theory anways...
